Promised Land

Soooooo…here is a new-to-you song. I actually wrote this song over ten years ago when I was fronting a six-piece ska band called FL-447…I sang it as a warm up, getting ready to record some SERIOUS BUSINESS…then I liked the way it sounded so here it is.

It’s a bit different from my last upload, which was basically church music…but don’t worry kids, I’m still a nice Catholic girl. ;)

Oh! key is E-minor, though of course feel free to change that as you see fit. :)


It’s not your divine purpose, but the reason that you gave,
Standing on my front porch telling me I must be saved.
What did I ever do to bring on this accost?
What did I ever say to make you feel you were the chosen one?

You march into war insisting God is on your side.
If this is true, then I ask why so many of your people have died?
The blood of the righteous feeds the children of the damned,
your god divides friends and brothers,
tell me, is this your promised land?

Just stop asking me if I have seen the light…
Just stop asking me how do I sleep at night…
Just stop telling me the way it’s got to be…
I’m certain that your salvation does not depend on me, depend on me.

Your god divides friends and brothers,
tell me, is this your promised land?
